Thomas Koch – Senior Editor & Team Overlord
AKA Kochie: He has been geeking out and gaming since he was 6. He’s a complete PC elitist, but still plays all the consoles and holds gameplay over graphics any day of the week.

Chris Edwards – Forum Admin & Contributor
AKA Korthal: Building Computers, Building Servers or Building Websites, that is where you will most likely find Chris during his spare time.

Nat Crouch – Contributor
Nat is a Canberra-based law student and avid console gamer. From a childhood romance with Nintendo to a tawdry love affair with Microsoft and Sony, he is just as likely to be found playing any of the major consoles. He also likes Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain. You can reach him on Twitter @Nat_Crouch.
Glen ‘Barry’ Gugliotti – Contributor
Barry loves all things games & hardware related. He has been reviewing games and producing written and video content on them for multiple outlets over the years. He doesn’t have as much time for gaming these days, but still tries to squeeze it in when he can. You can find him on Twitter @barrymcbruce.
